Family loved it. Used a Gill pan instead of foil. Only let it marinate for 10 minutes instead of an hour. It is on the family repeat list. Read More

The cook time was spot on. The fish turned out very moist. The flavor, however, was lacking and was bland. The dried mustard gave it a bitter taste, so I'd probably only use 1/4 teaspoon at most next time, if at all. The recipe also omits salt which is essential in making the flavors pop. I did appreciate the easy cleanup tough! You could probably get away without flipping the fish if you grill with the lid closed. Read More

Substituted Cayenne Pepper for Paprika and Hot Dry Mustard for the Dry Mustard to add a little spice to this. Delicious and VERY easy to make!!!! Read More
